Standard Licence Condition (SLC) 11.3, an option known as ‘Licence Lite’, allows a prospective electricity supplier to apply for a direction relieving them of their obligation to be a direct party to the industry codes listed in SLC 11.2.
In order to issue such a direction, we require robust alternative arrangements to be in place for a third party licensed supplier (TPLS) to discharge code compliance in these areas on behalf of the Licence Lite supplier.
This guidance should inform those arrangements. It sets out:
- the principal roles and responsibilities of both a Licence Lite supplier and its TPLS
- how to apply for a Licence Lite direction
- details of Licence Lite operation, including the activities that allow a licensed supplier to operate without being a direct party to the SLC 11.2 Codes and our likely view on enforcement and licensing matters.
